    Cover what up? The fact that he knew that Disney had no intention of releasing and distributing his film?

    Michael Moore and a publicity stunt? Hmm... surely not! It's not like he used his 15 seconds at the Oscar's 2 years ago to express his hatred for the President! Oh yeah... that's exactly what he did. :rolleyes:

    The biggest thing is that he (indirectly) has a contract with Disney, and they to do want to honor it.

    If Michael Moore ever had any fact in any of his documentaries or books it might be worth listening to him but he is nothing more than a moron with a camera

    Facts

    Moore opens up Stupid White Men with the story about the purging of over 57,000 voters from the registries in Florida...shortly before the 2000 election. It was supposed to remove the people who shouldn't be allowed to vote, like felons, but instead was mostly random people, over half minority voters. I can't find the original NY Times article that story came from, google sends me here for info, that article has information about ballot "spoilage" that i found interesting as well.

    Also, this will be happening, or might have already happened in every other state in the Union.

    ... in other news, your vote doesn't count anyway. Go electoral college!!

    Frankly, I think its stupid that Disney is trying to block the film. It all boils down to choice. If you don't want to see it, don't. Its as simple as that. Just like everything else. If you don't like the music don't listen to it, if you don't like the game don't play it, and I can go on forever. Wake up people, this country, is supposed to support freedom of choice!!!
